Cabinet of Curiosities Show 89 – TV Tie ins

“The TV’s the altar. I’m what people are sacrificing to.’
‘What do they sacrifice?’ asked Shadow.
‘Their time, mostly,’ said Lucy. ‘Sometimes each other.”
— Neil Gaiman (American Gods (American Gods, #1))

Music gives us all the feels!

So of course TV is going to use it to create as much emotion as it can. It wants you to feel!

But some TV shows take it even further and entwine their shows with music until you can’t think of one without the other

We’re going to enjoy some of the tracks that were deemed to be so important, shows actually named episodes after them.

We also have a selection of songs that were put into show episodes specifically to ensure you had the appropriate reaction to
whatever they were!

Cabinet is happy to cash in on this to try and get the same result! We’re good like that.

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 88 – Covers VIII – Sequel and ye shall find……

“She was a beefy young woman and, whatever piece of music she was playing, it was definitely losing.”
— Terry Pratchett 

(Moving Pictures (Discworld, #10; Industrial Revolution, #1))

Yes, it’s that time again…….
we at the Cabinet just can’t get enough of those covers……
just when you thought it was safe to turn the volume back up!

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 87 – Unexpected Guests and Surprising Support Acts

No one is more worried by the actual physical manifestation of a god than his priests; it’s like having the auditors in unexpectedly.”
— Terry Pratchett (Pyramids (Discworld, #7))

So there you are, minding your own business, making music when *boom* suddenly, as if by magic, Johnny Marr appears.

Nobody likes Johnny Marr sneaking up on them….
so we’ve managed to do an entire Unexpected Guests show without him – but there are plenty of others for you.
Including a Carrot Eating solo.
And some of the most bizarre live music pairings we could find!

Prepare to be surprised and amazed.*

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 86 – Horrible People

“Hell needed horribly bright, self-centered people like Eric.
They were much better at being nasty than demons could ever manage”
— Terry Pratchett (Eric (Discworld, #9; Rincewind #4))

Once upon a time, there was a thread on Twitter that asked….

Who are the worst people in the history of songs?

The act of being horrible – or being on the receiving end of horribleness – has produced an amazing amount of songs over the years.
We’ve picked a few for your delectation and delight –
and we’ve also picked a few classics and ask the question
“are they really as bad as you think they are?”

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 11th September
